Mark Doolittle

Joshua Tree, CA

My style and approach are greatly influenced by my background in biology. In my artwork, I try to express the dynamic form of growth and symmetry encountered in cells and tissues, as well as in whole organisms throughout the natural world. Without attempting to accurately portray biological structures in my artwork, I use the reiteration of simple shapes and abstract forms, like holes and fissures, to achieve the perception of organic complexity. My aim is for a piece to appear as if it arose by the process of natural growth.
